Judging from the response to the original question is it correct to say that virtual methods are key to setting up classes in a polymorphic scheme?

Yes - not sure beyond that what you want to know (except to note the as well as virtual you can also have dynamic methods - the difference between the 2 is more to do with implementation than abstract OO stuff)

reasonable coverage here - http://www.delphisources.ru/pages/faq/master-delphi-7/content/LiB0020.html (go next a few times for it all)
